Publication Update

The Journal of Philosophy & Scripture is now publishing new issues annually. We are now accepting submissions for the 2011 issue.

Call For Papers

We invite submissions of any length (though typically less than 7,000 words) from a wide variety of philosophical perspectives and religious traditions. We are as interested in brief and provocative sketches as we are in extended and polished pieces. We welcome submissions from faculty, graduate students and other researchers. Publication in JPS does not preclude publication elsewhere.

Articles should be submitted in blind-review format including a cover page with author's name, institutional affiliation, and contact information, and an abstract of no more than 100 words. Submissions are screened by the editorial staff and then submitted for peer review.

To submit electronic copies (preferably in .doc or .rtf format), or to be added to e-mail list and receive future announcements, contact:
philosophyandscripture @gmail.com

Mission Statement

The Journal of Philosophy & Scripture is an e-journal dedicated to reading scripture in light of philosophy and to examining philosophy in light of scripture. The Journal's task is informed by three primary aims: (1) to encourage philosophical discussions of religion to attend to the primary sacred texts (e.g. the Bible, the Qur'an, the Bhagavad-Gita) that fundamentally shape the religions under discussion, (2) to encourage a process of mutual reflection by means of which both philosophy and scripture may be more clearly illuminated, and (3) to do the above with a keen eye to possible effects on the ways in which we practice philosophy and religion.
